Online Piracy

July 17, 2011

Online Piracy is an issue that is becoming increasingly prevalent in our lives. Due to various technological advancements, pirating material via the Internet is both much easier and faster than it has ever been before. The music industry is among one of many industries greatly affected by piracy and the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), a trade group that represents the recording industry, has been extremely aggressive in its efforts to shut down websites that facilitate Internet piracy such as The Pirate Bay and Demonoid.

Our goal for this website is to discuss piracy from its prevalence and affect on the music industry to the moral aspects, not only in regards to its legality, but also how it is perceived in a cultural sense. We will also provide information about the Pirate Party, which is a legitimate political party looking to reform copyright laws.
